Raccoons are adorable but can be very aggressive if cornered. Those teeth can eat through wire, so don't try to grab one. Animal control is your best bet.

Imagining life without a horse is like imagining life without food, water and air.

Our hunting dogs are to hunt bear.

They practice on coon off season.

I am more concerned when they are hunting coon than bear.

Many more dogs have been hurt or, killed by coon than bears.

Wow! That is surprising. How are they killed by a coon? Does the rabies get them?

Nope...they kill the dogs in a fight with them.

That happens a lot with one or, two dogs.

The guys like to turn out 5 or, 6.

Raccoons can be vicious!! They look sweet with their little bandit masks, but if they are threatened, they will attack and are plain nasty!! We caught one when I was a kid and the coon looked like a badger when we cornered it.

Amazing that the coon doesn't back down. I guess when you think about it they are a relative of a badger and wolverine and they're nasty.
Might be easier to capture or put a bullet in them if they're threatening your area.
Spare the dogs! lol

Most of the time the coons run up a tree.

Then they are shot.

The dogs love the chase.

I'd get a live trap and have animal control remove it.
